A young girl simply identified as Queen has recovered after being rescued from being burnt to death over witchcraft allegations.



The girl was saved and rehabilitated by Anja Lovren, a Danish human rights fighter in Akwa Ibom State and is now doing well one year after the attack.

The Danish worker shared the pictures of the girl on her social media account yesterday as she highlighted the work her organisation is doing in the region to help children like Queen.

The Danish woman wrote:

“The scars on her body will never go away. It´s a reminder of the superstition so deeply rooted in the African culture. Queen has been with us for a year now.

 

In the beginning, she was terrified, weak and very fragile. But our team led by our Director of Child Development @nsidibeorok have worked so hard to make her a strong girl again. To make her feel worthy of love. To give her self-esteem.

 

You can recognize survivors of abuse by their courage. One day Queen will tell her story. Her will to survive and strength is remarkable. She is my little hero.”
